About the Ferrari 250 TR… “A three-time winner of the World Sportscar Championship, the 250 Testa Rossa is one of the most successful Ferraris in history. It is now one the world’s most sought after Ferraris after only 33 of all its variants were ever built. The 250 TR was designed to offer customers already racing with the 500 TRC a much more powerful engine on a similar chassis to help retain the former model’s great handling. Rumour also had it that the FIA would place a three-litre limit on prototypes, and this indeed proved to be the case. As a result, the reliable Columbo-designed three-litre V12 from the 250 Gran Turismo was used. As with other Ferrari racing cars, Enzo Ferrari demanded absolute reliability from all components, resulting in a somewhat conservative design approach that aimed for endurance racing success through durability rather than overall speed. This proved to be a multiple-title winning decision.”
